I'm looking for something like open3mod, but for Linux. Hopefully something that supports .ac files.

I know about g3dviewer, however I can't get it to compile on Arch Linux.

  • I think 3D file viewer or 3D model viewer might help.

I don't know what .ac files are, but besides g3dviewer there's also the free view3dscene which seems to support quite some formats.

There also exist the free 3D viewers lookat from OpenVRML and white_dune, but AFAICS they only support VRML.

Blender has a python mod to load ac files.


Assuming the ac file type isn't used by another app.

  • That script is for an old version of blender (an updated version can be found here). The thing is, I was actually hoping to find a viewer for the purpose of previewing files before importing into blender. Being written in python, the blender importer is rather slow on large files. When I have a bunch of files to go through this is rather a pain..
